COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT. 

This course or study embraces Hook-Keeping, Commerciil 
Arithmetic. Business Correspondence, and Penmanship. Drilli 
will also be Riven in Commercial Law and Civil Govern ment 
It is intended to make this department one of eminent utility. 

The time has come when our girls as well as our boys should 
have a practical business education. Many lucrative and hon- 
orable positions are open to women qualified to All them; 
besides, every housekeeper should know how to keep a comet 
account of her income and expenses. 

A successful business tuan, referring to this "new departure," 
writes us, "I am glad to see you have a commercial depart- 
ment. Our women know very little about the everyday busi- 
ness affairs of life. Many graduates can work out difficult 
problems, and read Latin and French ; but how many can make 
out a post-office money order, or tell the difference betweeni 
draft and a check? You are on the right line : teach your girli 
business." 



MUSIC DEPARTMENT. 

The instruction in this department aims at the highest style 
of culture in classical music. The rule is to admit no models o! 
doubtful merit. Our object is to give complete courses of 
musical education, in singing, piano-forte and organ playing, to 
those who have the requisite gifts and are prepared to submit to 
the necessary discipline. The time required by each student to 
complete a full course in any branch of music, and to obtain i 
diploma, will be determined by her previous attainments, and 
by the rate of her progress as dependent on her talent and 
industry. 

INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC. 



The subjects taught are the following : 

1. Theory of Music— embracing harmony, thorough-baa 
(obligatory for all organ students), counterpoint, fugue, compost 
tion, instrumentation, and history of music. The instruction « 
given partly in lectures, partly in classes, and partly In in* 
vidual lessons. 




2. nA5o.ronTF-.Thl8 includes elementary and technical 
exercises, ensemble playing (duos, trios, quartets), and train! m 
in artist.c performance, as respects style, expression, and artistic 
conception. Especial attention is pa(d to position, touch fln K er- 
| DK , etc. Beginners are not placed under inexperienced 
teachers, but take lessons of the best Instructors For the 
piano-forte, the works of Bach. Handel, Scarlatti, Clementl 
Mozart, Cramer. Beethoven. Chopin, Weber, Oottschalk Men- 
delssohn, Schumann, and Liszt form the foundation The text 
books used are Kobler's Method, N. E. Conservatory Method, 
Czerny s Studies In Velocity, Cramer's Studies, and Palmer's 
Theory. There will be periodical examinations of every stu 
dent; and her advancement will be determined by her prod 
ciSDcy, as thus tested. 

3. Organ. -The course includes everything necessary to give 
the pupil a mastery of the organ in church, concert, or parlor 
In church music, voluntaries, preludes, interludes, etc the 
course is thorough. The productions of Rinck, Hesse Sudds 
and others are used. Applicants for instruction on the organ 
should have some previous knowledge of piano-forte playing 



VOCAL MUSIC. 



1. Class SiN«ixo.-ln this, there will be a two years' course 
free to all pupils. The work of the first year consists of daily 
drills on rudiments, transposition, Intervals, major and minor 
scales, glees, and light choruses. Palmer's Choral Union is 
used as a text-book. Second year's work will be a review of Ru- 
diments and choruses in Choral Union, besides hymnology and 
grand chorus work. Lessons daily. Instruction is also given in 
breathing, sight reading, harmony, history of music, etc. 

2. Voice Ccxttjbi.— Thto branch will be in the charge of a 
teacher whose ability as a vocalist is unsurpassed. Careful at- 
tention is paid to correct breathing, distinct articulation, and 
proper expression. Instead of loud, forced tones, beauty and 
purity of voice are secured. The Old Italian method is taught. 
The vocalises and methods of Marches!, Concone, Vaccaj, and 
Emerson are used, together with arias from the best operas, and 
souks by Schumann, Mendelssohn, Pinsuti, Schubert, and others. 
Applicants for instruction in voice culture should' possess a good 
TOice, a healthy constitution, and an acquaintance with the rudi- 
ments of music. 



ART DEPARTMENT. 

This department is directed by an accomplished artinr, t^ 
has devoted years to the study or art in its various branches, and 
who seeks to cultivate in the pupil a love or the study, as wellaj 
to impart technical knowledge. 

The course includes tho following Drawing, light and shade. 
still life, crayon, pastel, landscape, marine, china decoration, 
nspOMMff, and portraiture in oil and crayon. Tho Art Hall is 
commodious, well lighted, and admirably adapted to its uses. 



Remarks on Course of Study. 



OPTIONAL STUDIES. 

All optional studies, such as vocal and instrumental music, 
drawing, painting, French, Gorman, Spanish, and Qteek, ■ 
taught so as to interfere as littlo as possible with the regular 
studies of the pupils. No pupil having commenced an optional 
study can discontinue it without the permission of the Faculty, 
given at the request of the parent or guardian. Pupils an 
required to study Latin in order to graduate; but those who 
decline to take Latin may, by completing the full English 
course, receive a diploma as graduate in Science. 

SPECIAL STUDIES. 

Pupils who are deficient in certain branches often desire to 
graduate. These may pursue such special studies as willenable 
them to take a regular class standing as soon as possible. 

Young ladies who do not intend to graduate may wish to com- 
plete special studies, or to enjoy the advantages of Music aid 
Art. Such will be received, and, on finishing these subjects, may 
reoeive a certificate of proficiency. 

Many ladies, who intend teaching, or who have already 
taught, desire a thorough knowledge of certain branches, at 
well as needed instruction in Methods and School Management 
Courses of instruction will be given to meet the respective wart 
of each. 

All special pupils boarding in the college must be subject to 
all the regulations affecting boarding pupils.

MODERN LANGUAGES. 

German, Preach, and .Spanish are taught by competent 
Wractore. About ono-half the Western Continent speTk * h 
Span.su language. Since the United States is now in verTclot 
religious and commercial relations with Mexico, a knowledge Z 
Spanish is a desideratum. Wo have incorporated the las' 
named study in our course and it will be taught by one who Z 
made this language a specialty. uaa 

IMPORTANT FEATURES. 

Special attention is given to letter-writing, punctuation, pen- 
manship, business forms, orthography, phonics, and English 
composition Our vocal music is not mere practice for com- 
mencement, but daily lessons in sight-reading, etc., are given 
by a teacher of acknowledged ability. Members of the 
advanced classes will have frequent reviews in all the elemen 
tary branches, besides daily drills in orthography. 

CHARACTER OP INSTRUCTION. 

The teachers are all liberally educated, enthusiastic, and expe- 
rienced. Their vacations are not spent in mere idle recreation 
but in studying matter and methods, thereby better preparing 
themselves Tor their special work. The teaching is thorough 
radical; bold to adopt all modern books and methods that 
are approved, equally bold to hold fast to the old that have been 
found good. The course of instruction is rtiimrlirttoo, not dig- 
it the lower elementary branches when advancing to the 
higher, but incorporating; and studying them throughout the 
entire course. 



ROUTINE OF STUDY AND RECITATION. 

Pupils are rarely confined more than an hour at a time in 
study and recitation. Short, stilted intervals for recreation and 
physical training are incorporated in the schedule of daily duty. 
My gymnastic exercises, under the direction of a competent 
teacher, are required of each pupil. This system is claimed to 
besuperior, highly conducive to health of body and vigor of 
mind.

EXAMINATIONS AND REPORTS. 

There will bo monthly written examinations, and, at the end 
of each three months, a term examination, a report of which will 
be sent to parents or guardians. The ilnal class standing ol 
each pupil will be mainly determined by these term examlaa, 
tions. 

CLASS DISTINCTIONS. 

Ail members of the Senior Class whoso average standing is as 
high as luiwty will be permitted to road original essays at Com- 
mencement. The two members having the highest average dur- 
ing their college course may, at the discretion of tho Faculty, be 
appointed to deliver the Valedictory and Salutatory addresses at 
Commencement, provided they have been members of the insti- 
tution for at least Ave consecutive terms previous to graduation, 

Ib the Junior class, twelve young ladles having the highest 
class standing may be appointed to read original composition! 
during the commencement exercises. To contend for this dis- 
tinction, a young lady must have been a member of the class for 
that entire collegiate year. 

In the Sophomore class, as many as ten young ladies may be 
selected to read or recite extracts during the commencement ex- 
ercises. Theso appointments are made solely on the ground o! 
superior excellence in elocutionary reading, good deportment 
and attention to duty. 

These distinctions aro awarded according to the relatra 
standing of pupils for the time they are together in the same 
class ; but in every case they must begin tho year together, com 
plete every study, and pass all the required examinations. 
Proper consideration is given, where time, labor, and expense 
are required for extra studies. 

f&- All dueB must be settled before any distinctions, awardi. 
or diplomas are conferred. 

DEGREES. 

Young ladies, on completing the regular course and standing 
an approved examination, will be entitled to a diploma with tte 
degree of A. B. Those completing the scientific course in lite 
manner will be entitled to a diploma with the degree of B. 8. 

Young ladies who have graduated at this college, or at institt- 
tions of similar grade, may pursue a Post-Graduate course of 
study. After completing this advanced course and passiogi 
satisfactory examination, they may receive the degree of A. M.

Pupils desiring to take music or art, or both, in addition to 
literary course, can find out cost of same by adding charges for 
said studies as specified above. It will bo seen we have no inci- 
dentals, and make no extra charges for any studies tauslitln 
our curriculum. With our vastly increased facilities, we eon 
sider our rates cheap. They will compare favorably with those 
of any similar institution in the South. For terais of payment, 
see next page, under head of Stipulations. 

Upon application, special rates will be furnished to two or more 
pupils from the same family or community, entering college 
during the same term. 



•STIPULATIONS. 

Tbe CMh for Rooks. Stationery, Drawing- and Painting Mate- 
rials, for bearding pupils, must be deposited on entrance; and 
j D tlir MMM of day i>upils, must be paid as furnished. 

All the above charges for board and tuition are required to be 
paid or satisfactorily secured, one-third cash, one-third Decem- 
ber It, and one-third March 7. 

New pupils are char«ed from the beginning of the month In 
which they enter, except for board when the entrance is after 
the middle of the month ; but no pupil is admitted for a less 
time than to the end of tbe term. 

Former pupils, returning after the term has opened, are 
charged tuition for the whole term, if carried on with tbe same 

das'-. 

No refunding of money paid for board unless the absence of 
the pupil exceeds one month; none for tuition, unless actual 
serious illness demands the removal of the pupil. 

No charge for tuMon is made against the daughters of clergy- 
men liini'i iii/ tin' ministry. 

It will be seen from the above that wc furnish a thorough and 
complete collegiate education at lower rates than usual in insti- 
tutions of the same grade. Our facilities for teaching have been, 
and are being, increased. Our Faculty consists of highly edu- 
cated and ex petteMMl teachers, and, while we pay strict atten- 
tion to the ornamental branches, we have special regard for the 
accurate scholarship of our pupils, and their training for the" 
practical duties of life. 



General Information. 



LOCATION. 



LnOrange is located 71 miles Southwest of Atlanta, on the 
Atlanta & West Point R. It., above the Pine Mountain range, 
upon a high, rolling country, and is not liable to extremes of 
climate. It is noted for its beautiful gardens of flowers, its ele- 
gant homes, and the general culture of its citizens. Through 
their generous efforts In establishing schools and colleges of 
high grade. LaG range has long been famed as a chief center of 
education. 



LaOrangi Female College. 



SITUATION. 

The col lego occupies a most magnificent site, in full view o| 
mnjestie landscapes. The late Dr. Hears, agent of the Ft 
Flint), said of the situation, that lie had traveled extenairely in 
Europe ami America, visiting schools and colleges, but had 
never seen one equal to this for beauty and adaptation. 

THE OKOUNDN 

Are nine acres In extent, and, beautiful by nature, are diversi- 
fied with terracod groves and gardens. The young ladta 
in their shady walks and quiet retreats, healthful outdoor 
exercise and pleasant retirement. 

THE BUILDINGS. 

The main buildings are the College and College Home. 

The Collego is built of brick and stone and covered with tin, 
making it fire-proof. It is (.0x120 feet, two stories high, with 
towered front. The first floor is divided by wide balls, crossing 
each other at the center, thereby affording perfect ventilation. 
Upon it there are six rooms, devoted to recitation, laboratory, 
and museum. 

On the second floor is the chapel and a complete arrant-men: 
of Music, Art, Society, and Library rooms, admirably adapted 
to their uses, and convenient to the Chapel. 

THE COLLEGE CHAPEL. 

The Chapel is GOxlOO reet, with a capacity for 1,800 persons. It 
is beautifully lighted by large windows, and has four entrances 
It has been pronounced, by distinguished visitors, to beVt 
finest audience room in the South. 

THE COLLEGE HOME. 

The Home is conveniently near the College. It has jur 1 : br« 
repaired, painted, and rendered much more attractive. Itii 
two stories high, built of brick, with tin roof, and contains seven- 
teen rooms, eighteen feet square. Cross halls divide both floors. 
Each room has two or more large windows, two doors, andi 
transom over each door. The thickness of the walls of tbe 
building is a protection aguinst the extremes of heat and cold, 
and young ladies find their rooms comfortable in every season. 



TEN THOUSAND DOLLASB. 

The Trustees have just raited ton thousand dollars to enlarge 
the College Home. Waterworks, bath room.", and other ooave- 
ilenoea will be added. Thin nan addition will givo ns tmple ao- 
eommodntloni for one handred boarders. Oat College Some 

will now be 60] 160 f.-.'t, two stories high at one end and three 

at the other. The boarding department now contains thirty 
rooms for boarders, parlor, reading-room, kitchen, store-room, 
pantries, and a Dining Hall 60x60 teet These rooms will all 
be finished and furnished in modern style. Kaeh story of the 
building has a hall running the entire length, with two cross 
halls opening upon a double gallery in front. These halls af- 
ford ample ventilation and easy escape In ease of lire. 

The College building will also be much improved and orna- 
mented. New seatings. maps, charts, and other teaching facili- 
ties will be furnished. The grounds will be neatly enclosed and 
much beautified. 

THE OUTLOOK. 

Prospects for the coming session are cheering. The College is 
steadily increasing in numbers and prosperity. Under the 
present management, it began two years ago with about a half 
dozen boarders and half a hundred pupils. Its instruction and 
management have been endorsed, during the second year, by a 
local patronage of eighty-four pupils, representing every reli- 
gions denomination of the vicinity. Its increasing popularity 
abroad is attested by the fact that, beginning its first year with 
six boarding pupils, it ended its second with sixty-four. This 
phenomenal growth has forced upon the judgment of the trustees 
tbe necessity of enlarging the boarding department. As will be 
seen above, a large sum has been raised, work has com- 
menced, and ample room will be provided by opening of fall 
session. They further endorse the present administration by 
committing the college to their management for a period of 
twenty years. This trust, however, in no way impairs their 
official authority, Dor disturbs the relation of the college to the 
conference. 

ALUMNA. 

Tho Alumna.' of the College hold an annual meeting to revive 
the associations of the past and contribute, as far as possible, 
to the prosperity of the Alma Mater. 




APPARATUS. 

The Collet is supplied with a now and complete philo. 
sophical apparatus, manufactured by the celebrated boa 
Ritcbie St Bora, Boston. As an Invaluable ;iiii t<> the teaching 4 

physiology, Yatrgy's Anatomical .Study has just been purchased 
at a considerable outlay. 

MUSLIM. 

The museum has been recently enlarged by a collect ion of rar> 
minerals obtained from the Geological Department ol the state 
of Georgia. Through the generosity of friends, valuable 
tions have been made (luring the past session. Further contri 
butions from friends are earnestly solicited, and will bu duly 
acknowledged. 

LITERARY SOCIETY AND LIBRARY. 

The Irenian Society is accomplishing much in the Collejn. 
Usually two societies exist in institutions of this class to encour- 
ago rivalry, but. unfortunately, this rivalry, particularly anion? 
girls, often generates bitterness, which wr hope to avoid by hav 
ing but one. The Society meets Friday afternoon, and the rca 
cises consist of reading*, narratives, recitations, essays, discus- 
sions, etc., in which all the members take part. 

By earnest efforts, the young ladies of the Society have com- 
pleted their hall and library room. The hall is in the college 
building, 90x34 feet ; library room, 1 Ix'io feet. These rooms fur- 
nish a perfect outfit for the purposes of the Society. It is ear- 
nestly hoped that all the friends of the Society will continue to 
contribute books; second-hand books, if they are solid, and 
proper for young ladies to read, are us valuable as new ones. 



STUDIES OF BOARDERS. 

Boarding pupils study in the afternoon, and two hours after 
tea under the care of a teacher. No desultory or aimless study 
Is allowed. This provision really doubles the advantages which 
boarding pupils possess over those who are not inmates of the 
house. Under such judicious regimen, pupils form habits ol 
earnest and intelligent application, and, as a rule, our boarders 
stand among the foremost of the school.

HEADING AND SEWING CLUBS. 

The boarding pupils will ho organized iuto a Reading and a 
Sewing Club. TbftM Clubs will bo required to meet weekly In 
» short session, under the superintendence of sotuo members of 
the Faculty. 

N I . A TN BBS- ORDER-DRESS. 

Every effort is made to sccuro the utmost neatness and order 
on the part of the young ladies, in the arrangement and care of 
their rooms, clothing, MHl persons. 

The Matron inspects the rooms of boarding pupils daily, and 
notes all instances of disorder, negligence, or UDtiditioss. 

While no uniform dress is prescribed, every effort is made to 
secure such plainness and simplicity in the style of dressing as 
is consistent with sound economy and good taste. 

MORAL AND RELIGIOUS ADVANTAGES. 

We seek to give the most constant attention to the moral and 
religious training of our pupils. Religious services are held 
morning and evening. Pupils attend such churches and schools 
in the city on Sabbath morning as their parents may designate. 
Social religious meetings are held during the week. Riblo les- 
sons are part of the curriculum. Sectarianism is eschewed, but 
It is our aim to commend the Christian religion by precept and 
example. 

HEALTH AND PHYSICAL TRAINING. 

In no private household is there employed a closer or more 
intelligent supervision over the inmates than is here exercised 
over the health of the boarding pupils. The slightest ailments 
are promptly treated. In serious cases, the best medical advice 
is secured and competent nurses provided. Choiceof (hephgsi- 
and of the system nj treatment rests with the parent, m6, 
where made known to the President, is scrupulously respected. 
All the conditions of proper sanitation are carefully observed. 
Day pupils aro not allowed to expose their health. Little chil- 
dren are provided with play-room within doors during the in- 
clement winter weather. The regular drill in calisthenics, with 
dumb-bells, wands, and rings, and in free gymnastics, aids in 
promoting and maintaining sound health, muscular develop- 
ment, and graceful carriage.

DOMESTIC ARKA N( I KM ENT8. 

The sleeping apartments of the College are accommodated each 
to four Inmates. The heavy articles of furniture, such as bed- ' 
steads, washstands, tables, wardrobes, and chairs, are furnished I 
by the College. The boarders are expected to Turnish their own ! 
outfit for the room. Each one should furnish one pair of sheets, 
one pair of blankets or comforts, one coverlet or spread, one pair | 
of pillow-cases, one dozen towels. Each pupil should be trnj 
with a pair of rubbers, a waterproof, and an umbrella. 

Parents and guardians are requested to withhold from their \ 
daughters and wards the means of expensive dress. School 
en should be plain and simple. They should, as far as possH 
made at home. Ibo much tune and money ewe absorbed, if mak 
here. Members of the Junior and Senior classes, on Comrs 
ment occasions, will be required to wear plaim white dressi 
void of ornament. 

Young ladles boarding iu the Institution are not allowed to 
open accounts at stores, or contract any debts. All necessary 
shopping is attended to for tbem, either by some of the officers 
or their ladies. No request from parents to allow their daughters 
to do shopping for themselves, or for any one else, will be com- 
plied with. 

All purchases are made for cash, which must, for this purpose, 
be deposited with, some member ot the Faculty. 

Boarders are not allowed to keep money in their rooms, i 
at their own risk. 

The Faculty, their families, and the boarding pupils, all par- 
take at the same table, and constitute one large family, in which 
the supervision and care of the pupils devolve upon the Presi- 
dent, assisted by his associates. The harmonious and kindly 
feeling thus generated obviates the necessity of an excessively 
rigorous discipline. Confidence between pupils and teachers is 
invited and secured. 

THE GOVERNMENT 

Is mild but tirm. The pupil is taught to respect herself, and to 
maintain her self-respect and the respect of those around her, 
by observing the proprieties of life in all her conduct, and in 
her intercourse with her fellow-pupils and instructors The 
effect is first to establish good principles, and then govern her 
by teaching her to govern herself in accordance with those prin- 
ciples. Such an esprit de corps is thus secured as renders rigid 
discipline rarely necessary.

APPENDIX. 



LAGRANGE FEMALE COLLEGE HISTORY 

(Irenlnn Casket.) 

Wo propose to give tho readers of our bright Casket a brief 
history of our college, its wants, and prospects. 

The LaOrange Femalo College, founded In 1883, was. in its 
infancy, an academy of high grade, and its first teacher of note 
wao Rev. Thomas Stanley. In the year 1816, under the presi- 
dency of Mr. J. T. Montgomery, a charter was procured, and the 
academy became a college After several years of unprece- 
dented prosperity— often more than 200 girls being in attend- 
ance—the whole collego property was sold to the Georgia 
Annual Conference of the M. E. Church, South. The trustees 
elected a now corps of competent teachers, and, in September, 
1857, the college began its distinctive work of Christian educa- 
tion under tho presidency of Rev. W. G. Conner, a member ot 
the Conference. It enjoyed patronage from all parts of this and 
adjoining states. 

Under the presidency of Rev. W. A. Harris, D. I> . in 1869, it 
took the lead of church schools in sending out the tlrst resident 
graduate class in the South, of which Miss Alien Coital 
Cobb, now a successful teacher in tho Wesleyan Female Col- 
lege, was an honored member. Well established in a career of 
enlarged and increasing usefulness, its work was arrested by a 
disastrous fire on the 2Sth of Ifftrcb, I860. The college property, 
consisting of a magnificent building, an ample chemical and 
philosophical apparatus, a complete equipment of costly 
musical instruments, large and well-selected libraries, was con- 
sumed. But such a great work as tho higher education of 
woman was not to be hindered -even by a calamity like this. 
The friends of the Col lege rallied with willing hearts and open 
purses to rebuild, and so'\j> the hammer of the carpenter was 
heard. The completion of the work was prevented by the war. 
Through the energy and perseverance of Rev. Jas. R. Mayson, 
late president, the building was put in condition to be used. In 
the midst of general depression and business prostration result j, 
ing from the war, he succeedod in raising $10,000 for tho work, 
principally from tho noble citizens of LaGrange. After several 
y»ars of prosperous labor, he resigned his position in order to 
return to the pastorate. The Trustees then elected Rev. John 



f Ileldt, J). I» , Pn -ddent. Inobodienco to tills call ho left 
the large* pastoral clmrgo in the North Georgia Con 
ference. With an energy and devotion, born of high purpose 
and strong conviction, he entered upon his duties The eduea 
tional facilities of the College are being multiplied, its currieu 
lum advanced, and its patronage enlarged. We are collecting 
libraries and would mo* earnestly call tho attention of our 
friends to tins Med. With this pressing want supplied the 
boarding department enlarged, and the grounds beautified ' this 
feUege will ho amply equipped for its grand work. These' facts 
make their own appeal to the friends of Christian education 
throughout the world. This college belongs to the church and 
any aid afforded will be for the advancement of the causo of 
Christ. Some of our sister colleges are tho objects of noble bene- 
factions from large hearted Christian patriots from various 
parts of the country. Would that some George I. Seney could 
seeour opportunity and want, that his generous soul might be 
moved toward us. No College can be found moro worthy. The 
climate of LaGraage is healthful and tree from tho extremes 
of heat aad oold; the air is pure and bracing. The College 
occupies a moet commanding site, surrounded by picturesque 
ludsoapee. All its conditions as an educational center are 
dual, II not superior, to any in the South, and it cannot fail to 
return large dividends on judicious investments in the future. 



LAGRANGE FEMALE COLLEGE. 

(Frcrn tin' o, In mliui En.|Ulrcr-8un, Sep., IMS.) 

The LaGrange Femalo College is presided over by Iiufus W. 
Smith, A. M.. a teacher of long experienae and rare <juali tics. 
Mrs. Smith, whose quick, accurate knowledge of mathematics 
and easy manner of imparting information have achieved for 
her an extensive reputation, has charge of this department in 
the College. There is a full corps of teachers, and in every 
detail the College is well equipped. The graduates and former 
scholars of Trot. Smith are his best reference. A thorough gen- 
tleman, a pure man, and a disciplinarian and teacher of unusual 
if. he is worthy of the largo patronage he has received. 
« President and Mrs. Smith formerly had management of a nigh 
ichool in Middle Georgia. Bar. Walker Lewis, Mr. G. Gunby 
Jordan. Dr. Seth Jordan, and others probably in our community 
received their school education and early training there. For 
fears he has been President of Dalton Femalo (Jolloge. Parents

It ia tho poor of any seminary in tbe state. It 13 owned by the 
North Georgia Conference of the Methodist Church, and wai 
instituted in 1883 and regularly chartered In 1846. By a singula 
fatality, after yean of usefulness, tbe buildings of this oolien 
wore swept away by fire. They have beeo restored, hi 
In far greater splendor than before. Tho main edifice ■ 
elegantly desiKneii, end strongly built of brick and stone. It i? 
no by ISO feet, two stories high at one end and three at the 
other. Tho maKnifieent chapel is worth seeing, and the com- 
modious boarding house, library, recitation rooms, society 
halls, etc., aro handsomely finished and well ventilated. 
Perched upon the apex of a lofty hill, and surrounded by ma- 
jestic trees, with the view bounded only by the distant horizon. 
it is without doubt one of the most imposing structures in the 
state. Tho late President, Dr. Jno. W. Heidt, having recentl) 
been transferred to a new field of fluty in Texas, RaftuW. 
Smith, A. M., has been invested with that responsible office, and 
brings with him from Dalton a reputation as an educator and 
disciplinarian unsurpassed in tbe state. He is a gentleman ol 
benignant manners and marked ability, and is assisted by hit 
excellent wife, Mrs. Oreon M. Smith, a thorough mathematician. 
Rev. P. A. Heard, A. M., and a large and competent corps ol 
Instructors. 

The college has opened well, and the course of study is 
exceedingly judicious and thorough. Indeed. LaGrange is 
justly entitled to be regarded as one of the most noted educa- 
tional centers of the South. 



(LaOrango Reporter, Oct. 10, ISM.] 

• We reprint from tho Wetleym Christian Advocate an article 
from tho pen of Dr. Weyman H. Potter, its gifted editor, con- 
cerning the outlook for the LaGrango Female College. It is a 
deserved tribute to a school which stands among tho first

fessor Euler B. Smith, whose capacity and success have Riven 
him a high position among Southern educators; Mrs. Euler B.

efficiently done, and the accomplished Miss Withorsnoon, one 
of tbo first young ladies and most Rifted vocalists in the Bouth. 
With such a corps of instructors thero can be no failure. The 
College is enjoying great prosperity. The boarding houso is full 
ami the locai patronage excellent. 



COMMENCEMENT EXERCISES. 

(Extract from taOrangc Reporter, Juno 9, 1887.) 

Last night ( Wednesday) saw the close of the best commence- 
ment the college has known since the war, and that Is saying 
much. It is no relloction upon any of the former Presidents, 
faculties, or pupils to say this : it is only saying that there have 
been growth, development; that the college is not only In the 
van of loading oducational institutions, but that it has struck 
out on a "now departure" of its own, and has before it a career 
of great usefulness and prosi>erity. A great advance has been 
made by the college within even a twelvemonth. New methods 
bave been introduced and now inspirations breathed into its at- 
mosphere. The discipline is admirable and beautiful, the course 
thorough and comprehensive, blending the ideal and practical 
in harmonious proportions ; ibfl n atom of things have been de- 
veloped and the pupils taught to investigate and to think. It is 
impossible for a young lady to be superficial or indolent under 
the spurs and incentives to honorable eiertion which this insti- 
tution supplies. There was certainly not a listless exercise 
during the whole commencement. A larger attendance we have 
not seen sinco the ante-bellum days. Not only people from the 
country, but very many from a distance have been with us, not 
only pleased but delighted with what they have seen and heard. 
Miss Pond, the head of the department of instrumental music, 
is a Boston lady, whose splendid culture is equaled by her 
modesty and grace. The pieces executed on this occasion dem- 
onstrated yet more convincingly her superior talents* and care- 
ful trailing of her pupils. Mm Kincaid is certainly an artist of 
rare gifts and some of her pupils bid fair to achieve more than 
local distinction with the brush. They have done well-such 
was the verdict not only of the masses, but of critics and con- 
noisseurs. The crayon work was particularly commended. Some 
of the portraits were real masterpieces, while the palntlugs in 
oil were highly creditable. The Operetta was the most beauti- 
ful thing we ever saw on a stage. It would have done credit to

artieaM of national fame. Miss Withorspoon rose to heigthB of 
song that we havo nevor heard surpassed. One of her selections 
was from "Ermlnie," which was on the boards in New York for 
three hundred consecutive nights. Our praise is not extrava- 
gant- it will meet the approval of the "sober secoad thought" 
of every appreciative auditor.

After twelve months of success, unprecedented tn the history of 
this worthy institution, a fitting close in tho shapo of the most 
brilliant commencement ever enjoyed by its patrons and friends 
has just passod. The unanimous verdict is that this commence- 
ment far surpassed anything evor before attempted by this pop- 
ular school. 



(Atlanta Constitution. June 11, 1887,) 

The commencement was a grand ovation from beginning to 
end. The uuiversal verdict is that it was tho best the college 
has over had. The management of this college, by President R. 
W. Smith, and his corps of assistants, has been signally success- 
ful. During the past year there have been one hundred and forty- 
six students in attendance. The college is thoroughly equipped 
in every department, and is an honor to LaOrango. It has a 
host of friends and patrons, many of whom wcro present to wit- 
ness its commencement. What they saw convinced them that 
this is a model school. LaOrange honors President Smith and 
his assistants for their noble work. 



PRESS EXCEBFTS. 

The Quartette, composed or Misses Luolla Pond and Pauline 
Witherspoon and Messrs. E. B. and A. M. Smith, furnish music 
that will challenge comparison with the best productions of pro- 
fessionals.' The audience was completely captivated by the first 
selection, as was manifested by a hearty encore, and each subse- 
quent appearance only intensified the delight of the auditors. 
Miss Pond as instrumentalist, and Miss Witherspoon as vocalist, 
are finished mrU tU t in their respective lines, and nono who 
heard them were disappointed. The Messrs. Smith are equally 
accomplished in vocal training and contributed equally as much 
to the pleasure and success of the entertaininent.--r<>i/rfrt a<1

Prof. E. B. Smith, though a young man, has already won 
laurels iu his noble calling, and has helped to build up at 

Whiteshoro ono of tho host schools in Texas. Mr. Bmlth Is, per- 
haps, tho most thorough teacher of languages of his years in 
Texas. His Spanish class, through his adoption of the cele- 
brated Meistersohaft system, have acquired the art of talking in 
tho Spanish language with lluency.— Ft. Worth Oatette 



Prof. Enler B. Smith has charge of tbo English, ijatin, and

teacher in the state, or one more devoted to tho calling which 
he has so fitly and wisely chosen. He is the make-up of all the 
essential features that go to insuro success in tho school-room. 
Ho spent one year in Mexico, that to his acquaintance with 
the Spanish lauguago he might add a practical knowledge 
worth the having. This ho possesses to an extent that enables 
him to converse as freely and as correctly in the Spanish as la

The Summer Normal Institute, at Meridian, closed Wednes- 
day. The principal of this school, Professor E. B. Smith, 
though quite a young man, has exhihited a capacity as a 
teacher which it is believed cannot be excelled by any in the 
state. He is practical, thorough, and progressive in his meth- 
ods, untiring as a worker, and nover fails to enlist the Interest 
of the entire school in the exercises and discussions. Those who 
have attended tho institute have been greatly improved in their 
knowledge of tho subjects and methods of teaching, and 
teachers and the people havo been inspired with a deeper Inter- 
est than ever before existed in educational matters.— ^''
